Unicorn Dreams ( Zendoole stitch) 1

Standard

I have a new project to practice my embroidery stitches on. I’ve chosen pink, mauve & yellow to work in.  If it works out well I might make it into a cushion for our granddaughter ( hence the pink)

Here’s my progress 

I’m attempting to practice covering up all those black lines & getting smooth edges. 

It’s quite a fun design, isn’t it.

Ploughing match

Standard

On Saturday our local ploughing match was held in a local field. 

We enjoyed watching shire horses ploughing

And some steam ploughing 

At the other end you can just see the plough 

There were lots of modern & vintage tractors, along with dog, horse & falconry displays, with all the normal competitions, look at the size of that pumpkin 

The weather held out & was very warm for September. 

SAL: September update 

Standard


I finally chose a new SAL project to finish, the stitch a long I started with the frosted pumpkin. January & February’s were already finished. Yes, those are 3 billy goats.  I hope to have that square finished by next time.
